Gen John Sullivan & the Battle of the Brandywine – 9/17 @ 1PM

Michael Harris, Norristown historian and teacher, grew up learning about battles Americans fought in. His interest in Brandywine – the largest battle of the American Revolution and one that encompassed more troops over more land than any combat on American Soil until the Civil War – grew into a book-length study that reveals why the battle gained the reputation as the Battle that Lost Philadelphia but Saved America on September 11, 1777. Harris will offer a book-signing following his talk.
